Notice: Emergency Management Institute Goes to Online Applications for Resident and Basic Academy Field-Delivered Courses. See the full statement by visiting the following link Online Admissions Announcement.

Emergency Management Institute on-campus training at the National Emergency Training Center (NETC) is cancelled through August 1. This suspension supports CDC social distancing recommendations and allows our students to focus on their families and communities. If you were scheduled for a class at NETC, our Admissions Office will contact you to reschedule. EMI course managers will contact field training delivery locations regarding the status of field-delivered courses. We will work to reschedule courses for later in the year to the maximum extent possible.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) continues to monitor the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as it relates to COVID-19. To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the CDC is encouraging organizations to promote social distancing, hold meetings via videoconferencing, reduce non-essential travel, and adjust or postpone events and gatherings. As such, FEMA resident courses will be suspended until further notice. We continue to evaluate the national situation and will provide another update in late June.

Please note that this decision is not one which was made lightly. We are mindful of the impact this has on you. We truly value our partnership with you as we ensure our continued ability to help people before, during, and after disasters.

Emergency Management Institute Goes Social

FEMA’s Emergency Management Institute (EMI) launched its new social media accounts this week to better share information on training opportunities and course offerings and in a timely manner. The accounts provide platforms for trusted networking opportunities that the emergency management community could use both on and off campus. Students and emergency management professionals also will be able to engage in a dialogue to share information related to the training they receive through EMI.
